    Thread: Bremsbelag Prufen - ? What is that ?

    1. 03-26-2006 12:25 PM #1
      I got this warning in my dash board (Bremsbelag Prufen) with the usual beeps and this sign got on:
      (O)
      Same sign with "abs" in the middle is for ABS worning but this one is without "ABS" text.
      What does it mean?
      From what I seen on Google these are "Bremsbelag":

      I think these are those plates for braking, don't know how to call them in English, does that error mean that those breaking plates are too used?
      Thank you.

      break pad alarm is going off--you need to replace your front pads.

      So after this, do I need to do anything like reseting from some buttons or soemthing?
      Or just replace the pads?
      I also hear some ticking at the front wheels, that is same cause, right ?
      Thanks.

      pop off your front wheels and look at the thickness of the brakepads, you should be able to tell if that's the issue pretty easily.

      I just visited your site, I see you are same user that had that ASA wheels for sale, you replied in a topic where I asked about what wheel size to order for my Golf 4. I chosed something from a catalog and later I realised I got exact same model that you had for sale:

      I could not get yours anyway because I am in Romania
      Mine are 17 not 18, the sellers recommended 16 and now I wish I have gotten 18 because I am thinking to get coil-overs then I will have space in front and back of the wheel when the wheel gets upper.

      the wear sensor light does not require a reset. Just get new pads with the built in sensor, hook them up and you'll be all set.

      I wanted to ask "built in sensor "? Then I found how it looks like:

      Edit: that is not my car
